One bottle of nasal spray per family member!

nasalspray.jpgTake that, flu season! Jenny reminds us that we should each have our own bottle:

Saline nasal spray is sold at CVS in two-packs. It's l expensive than buying one at a time and much cheaper than the cute kid spray with cartoons on it. So, I bought four, came home and right away Sharpied each one with a family member's name. We've already suffered through one round of colds this season and, in the middle of the night, I know I am reaching for a soothing, chemical free, and, if not germ free, at least germ-personalized product.

Basically, I am learning that if it involves the words "Sharpie" and "Right Away" it is bound to make my life easier.

So true, Jenny. So true.
